First Trailer for ‘Ready Player One’ is Packed With Nostalgia
Entertainment| | By Brian Delpozo
In recent years, pop culture has embraced nostalgia on a larger scale than ever before. There’s been a steady slew of reboots, remakes, and resurrected childhood franchises in cinemas, while series with throwback vibes like The Goldbergs and Netflix’s immensely popular Stranger Things air on television. The latest — and perhaps most blatant nostalgia-fest — is the upcoming film Ready Player One.
The film’s official synopsis reads:
In a virtual world called Oasis, a teenager finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the game’s founder dies and and the fortune that he leaves behind is the grand prize.
Ready Player One is written by Cline and Zak Pen and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, and T. J. Miller. The film is scheduled to be released on March 30, 2018.
